This pasta dish is not only delicious but also low in calories and fat. Pasta recipes are a great way to feed the family quickly and this dish, from start to finish should take about 30 minutes. So give this one a try next time.
2 1/2 lbs large wild shrimp peeled and deviened
2 tbs crushed red pepper
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 medium hot banana peppers sliced
1/4 cup fresh basil chopped
8 large ripe tomatoes skinned and diced
1 cup white onion julienned
3 tbs fresh oregano chopped
1/4 cup Kalamata olives
1 lbs thin spaghetti cooked al dente
3 tbs unsalted butter
salt and pepper to taste
1. Place the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Cook the garlic, banana peppers and onions until soft. Add the shrimp and cook slightly just until they begin to curl. Remove the shrimp and set them aside.
2. To the pan stir in the tomatoes, olives, and the crushed red pepper. Continue to cook until the tomatoes and vegetables form a sauce, about 10-15 minutes.
3. Now add to the sauce; the basil, oregano, pasta and the shrimp. Stir and cook for 5 minutes and serve topped with the crumbled goat cheese.
Chef’s Notes: Fresh goats cheese is a great addition to this dish, just crumble the cheese over the top of the finished dish.
